49ers hire Steve Wilks as defensive coordinator

The San Francisco 49ers are hiring former Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks as their defensive coordinator, replacing DeMeco Ryans.

Fantasy Impact

After Matt Rhule was fired in Carolina, Steve Wilks turned the season around for the Panthers, taking them to a 6-6 record despite trading away RB Christian McCaffrey. Under Wilks, the Panthers only allowed 21 points per game and averaged 2.25 sacks with a turnover forced per game. After failing to get the head coaching gig in Carolina, Wilks ends up in a prime situation with a plethora of talent available.

49ers D/ST records two interceptions in Week 17

The San Francisco 49ers D/ST registered two interceptions in the team's 37-34 Week 17 win over the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

The 49ers D/ST shockingly produced one of their worst defensive efforts of the season against backup QB Jarrett Stidham and the Raiders, as they allowed 34 points and 500 total yards of offense. They did come up clutch in overtime with an interception, resulting in the game-winning field goal to hand the 49ers their ninth consecutive victory. The 49ers D/ST should rebound in a big way against the lowly Cardinals in the season finale.

Fantasy Impact

49ers D/ST logs three sacks Week 15

The 49ers' D/ST logged three sacks and allowed 13 points in Thursday's divisional win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

San Francisco's defense continued it's stretch of dominance on Thursday, allowing only 13 points to a usually-productive Seattle offense. They didn't make any big plays, but they also didn't allow any big plays to be made against them. They've been stellar this season and remain a strong start for the rest of the season.

49ers D/ST records two interceptions and fumble in Week 14

The San Francisco 49ers D/ST registered two interceptions and one fumble in the team's 35-7 Week 14 win over the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact

The 49ers D/ST pitched a shutout in the first half, and ultimately produced another strong performance this week against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. This was actually their first game this season without a sack, though the three takeaways easily made up for it. The 49ers D/ST will remain a top five fantasy option versus the Seahawks in Week 15.
